I have a document with a bibliography in BibTeX and must to some post-treatment on the generated bibliography before producing the final document (I must emphasize some author names and sort the biography in some non-obvious way). I thought I could generate the text of the bibliography in markdown and deal with it from that point.

I tried to adapt what was proposed in another question (Bibtex to html/Markdown/etc., using Pandoc) :

pandoc --filter=pandoc-citeproc --standalone mybib.md -o mybib-out.md

with a mybib.md containing the following:

---
bibliography: 'mybib.bib'
nocite: '@*'
...

Bibliography
============

but the output file only contains basically the same as the input, while exporting to pdf or html generates the actual bibliography.

How can I solve my problem?

Try using a different markdown format, e.g: pandoc -t markdown_strict --filter=pandoc-citeproc --standalone mybib.md -o mybib-out.md The formats are listed in pandoc's documentation. The default setting is pandoc's markdown which might not generate the bibliography.

Pandoc-citeproc doesn't insert the references in Markdown unless you explicitly specify a div with ID refs:

---
bibliography: 'mybib.bib'
nocite: '@*'
...

Bibliography
============

::: {#refs}
:::

Alternatively, one can also disable the citations extension in the output format, which will cause pandoc to insert the expanded citations:

pandoc --to=markdown-citations …
